Great Rail Journeys has launched its new ‘Cruising By Rail 2012/13’ brochure featuring six new river and ocean cruising holidays by rail from a total of 27 tours. The holidays, which generally combine rail travel with the cruising experience, have various departure dates between December and October 2013 and the overall lead-in price is £528 per person for a six-day Rhineland Markets Cruise.
The six new tours, which include a programme of excursions and the services of a tour manager throughout, range from the Danube to Burma. As an example, a ten-day Mozart Danube Cruise costs from £1,675 per person to include First and Standard rail travel from St Pancras, a seven-night cruise on MS Mozart in a two-berth cabin including all meals and wine with dinner, two nights' hotel accommodation with breakfast and dinner, guided tours of Melk Abbey, Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna, visits to Esztergom, Dürnstein and Göttweig Abbey, wine tasting in Krems and porterage for certain sections of the tour.
